    @anicaution, You guys are the right type for a diesel car and not as many of us. A diesel has to be milked with high running and results in lower costs of every aspect. All calculations of petrol vs diesel will be turned on its head with such a use.

    Huh...

    1. Glow Plug change : 1098 Including labour (Rs. 200)
    2. AC Noice resolved
    3. Un successful attempt of diagnosis by SA for dashboard noise.

    As I was short of time; I said let it be.

    Hi All,

    A year back I struck with above problem. No music in car since then.

    And probabaly longest battle for judgment with dealer & Fiat for above issue.

    No clear solution as expected by me.

    But...

    After intervention from Customer Care Fiat Italy : I got call from Mazahar (TATA Motors) as great guesture/compromise to offer me change of BLAUPUNKT music syetm in my car at 20% cost of dealer price.


    MRP : 38,000
    Dealer Price : 28,000
    Offer to me : 22,000

    I said BIG no.

    And yesterday my car got music.

    Fitted aftermarket PIONEER DEH-X3590UI.

    Ohoooo.......it was big big wait...
